Sweater for a rainy day
Knitting has definitely opened me to colors I never would have considered wearing in the past. I have never owned anything brown in my life, not even shoes! This is Sanguine Gryphon's Bugga! sock yarn, colorway is Oak Timberworm; four full skeins, which I think works out to about a mile of yarn. My gauge was 7 stitches an inch, which I think works out to about 430,000 stitches.
Knitting has also given me a huge, extended family of fiber friends all over the world (hi all of you out there!), who inspire, enable and help me every day in real life and on ravelry.com.
Here's to many more years of lovely yarns, knitting, and sweater weather.
